    Two Can Play That Game by Leanne Yong Book Review

    Although I don’t read a whole lot of YA anymore, when I was approached to read this book by Allen & Unwin, I had to say yes. It’s about games? It’s from an Asian-Australian author? It ticked so many boxes and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. Thank you to Allen & Unwin Australia for kindly providing me with a physical copy to review. I meant to publish this review on the publication date but life got a little away from me! Book’s Blurb: Funny and romantic, an upbeat YA novel about gaming, goals and getting even from a fresh new voice in contemporary fiction. How…

    Boy Parts by Eliza Clark Book Review

    So I was recently gifted a new Kindle Paperwhite by my partner (thank you <3) and with it, Amazon gave me 3 months of Kindle unlimited! I’ve never had kindle unlimited before so this was a fun way to explore books I was curious about and give them a read. One that’s been on my radar and highly recommended by a few people was Boy Parts. I didn’t know much about this book – only that it had a lot of funny cultural comments and name-drops that were relevant to the last few years as it was published in 2020. I did not realise how dark, how violent, depraved and…

    Highly Anticipated Books of 2023

    Despite the ‘book buying bans’ I’ve tried to instil in myself in previous years, there are always highly anticipated books that I will buy sooner rather than later as I’m so excited to read them. So far in 2023, my list is quite short but I thought I’d talk about it anyway! Happy Place by Emily Henry I was one of the few that loved Book Lovers so I’m super excited to get her latest release and see what it’s like! You’ll find that I tend to do into standalone books blind so I don’t know what this one is about but it should hopefully be the cute romance I…

    My Bookish Bullet Journal / Reading Journal for 2023

    It is with much sadness that I declare: gone are the days of an elaborate bullet journal that I struggle to keep up with and labour with my time and effort for little return. I’m back on the minimalist and practical book tracking baby! My reading journal has definitely changed a bit – last year was already a more minimalist version of what I used to do and this year, I evaluated how I used it in 2022 and culled a few more spreads that weren’t really sparking joy. Here are my new pages for 2023 (in the same notebook, to save paper): Similarly to last year, my second page…
